Hi,

I joined this forum because I am currently doing a research paper on Rorke's Drift. I would appreciate any primary information sources that you could inform me of.

Thank you,
Caith

Caith,

A useful start could be made by looking at rest of this excellent site.

A next step could be the books sect of this site. There are a number of accounts written by participants in battle of RD.

Yes, this is a very informative site, thank you.

I was wondering if any of you know about any news articles that may have been written in that time period about Rorke's Drift. I am also curious if anyone knows of a source that could provide the individual identity's of all the soldiers who fought in the battle.

For identities you would need the book "The Noble 24th" by Norman Holme available at the RRW website shop.

For news articles you would need "The Illustrated London News" compiled by Ron Lock and Peter Quantrill also availabe at the museum webiste.

Again I'd direct you to the book reviews page of the original discussion forum.
